On the cards since 2015

The foundation for the Customer Portal Sewing was laid in 2015. In addition to offering a wealth of information relating to needles and sewing, the first version, that was made available in German and English, offered for the first time the option of ordering sewing machine needles online directly from Groz-Beckert. And the service was well received: In the very first year, the number of registrations and orders placed online significantly exceeded expectations.

Additional languages, more markets

Between 2016 and 2020, we expanded the availability of the Customer Portal Sewing further. Ten languages were added to the Customer Portal and the online shop was made available in more markets. This means that many of our customers from all over the world now have the option of using the Customer Portal and the online ordering function. And they are: In 2020, half of the total sales was achieved through orders in the Customer Portal.

New functions from Autumn 2020

In September this year, the Customer Portal Sewing was switched to a technically upgraded version. This version is optimized for use on mobile devices, meaning that the portal can now be used conveniently anytime and anywhere. Another new addition is the individual start page, which shows your recent orders and your most frequently purchased products.

More information in the product catalog

The product catalog has also been improved with new and optimized functions. Via the improved search function and the new flyout menu, which you can use to jump directly to specific product groups, you can also find your needles faster. You can choose between different views for the results display – for example the relevant product label if required. When logged in, you can also see the prices and availability of the needles right away.

On the product detail page, you will also find extensive information on the selected needle: In addition to technical details and the available point styles, you can also find out which application the needle can be used for.
